    Default Beretta Garand receiver

    I got a lead on a breda garand receiver but wasn't to sure about the deal after I heard the price
    ($700)
    receiver is in good shape with no pitting or rust, but seamed high to me.

    A few years ago, when the Danish parts kits were available, Danish Beretta and Breda receivers were available in the $200 to $250 range. Apparently they sold in the $50 range in Canada. The Danish receivers probably were sneaked in from Canada. At the gun shows several complete rifles were in the $1000 to $1400 range. The rifles were at many shows before they sold.

    You can buy a Breda for about $1000 - $1400 depending on who you get it from, and I mean the whole rifle, not just the receiver.

    Thats why I left them there. He's got 4 and wasn't willing to deal or trade so I will keep looking.

    I do not want anyone going North, but they sold $40-$50 in Canada. Not sure, but they are still around.

    I remember when they were first coming into the country I was paying around $350.00 second hand. I'm betting the importer had about $100.00 in them. Rick B

    Edited to correct that this price was for the "complete rifle". Rick B

    "...they are still around..." Not up here they ain't. At least not in great numbers. Even if they were you couldn't just pop up and buy one without having our licence. You couldn't legally import it, Stateside, either.
    Spelling and grammar count!
